MOTIVATION - New large scale intense laser facilities with unique specifications will be soon coming on-line, capable of laser intensities never achieved before. At the same time, a number of dedicated laser installations are being built or upgraded across the world to enter new regimes of laser-matter interaction for particle acceleration and applications to generation of radiation. In this rapidly evolving context there is a compelling need of advanced training for the community of young researchers involved in the various aspects of this research, requiring theoretical, numerical and experimental skills.

The School aims at bringing together distinguished scientists and motivated young researchers, post-doc and Ph.D students engaged or willing to enter this field, to promote advanced training in the key areas of ultraintense lasers, interaction with matter at ultra-high field and laser-plasma acceleration, with a focus on emerging, new, ground-breaking initiatives based on novel particle acceleration techniques, like the EuPRAXIA project. Novel accelerator techniques will indeed be one of the highlights of the School, where the best expertise from the accelerator science will deliver fundamental notions and extraordinary achievements of modern light sources based on the latest acceleration technology, with a perspective view on novel accelerators.  Also, specialists in generation of advanced radiation will provide latest update on applications to major multidisciplinary fields, including medicine and biology, material science and space industry.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME - The programme of the course will cover all aspects of plasma acceleration, including beam driven and laser driven electron acceleration and different flavours of laser-driven ion acceleration. • Leading experts will guide participants through a journey across the science and techonology of intense lasers, including advanced laser schemes for future high average power sources, fundamental aspects of laser-plasma interactions, electron beam dynamics and advanced configurations of radiation emission, from Thomson scattering to X-ray free electron laser. • Ultrafast measurements and ultimate diagnostic techniques for laser and plasma characterization will be a key part of the course, with step-by-step training on laser pulse amplification and compression, pulse duration and contrast measurement, phase control and frequency conversion, electron and ion detection. • Basic and advanced concepts of numerical modelling of laser-plasma interaction physics, radiation emission and particles and radiation transport will be presented in view of the development of full start-to-end simulation of radiation sources. • An overview will also be given of the main laser facilities featuring the most advanced high power and high energy laser sources.

  POSTER SESSION - Participants are strongly encouraged to present their work with a poster and discuss it during poster sessions that will take place every day during lunch time.

A Best Poster price of 500 € will be awarded in collaboration with Applied Sciences Journal Editors. The best poster will be selected by a committee including School Directors and Invited Lecturers. Participants willing to be considered for the price selection should submit their poster abstract no later than June 15th, 2017.

A Technology Breakthrough price of 500 € will also be awarded in collaboration with VCS Vacuum Components and Systems. The price will be awarded to the author of the poster showing original, innovative technological solutions and ideas in the experimental approach to intense laser-plasma investigation. Participants willing to be considered for the price selectrion should submit their poster abstract no later than June 15th, 2017.

Venue: CNR conference center in Anacapri, Capri, Italy

incanto_serale

 

VENUE - The School will take place at the CNR Conference Facility in Anacapri, on the island of Capri, in the south of Italy, off the cost of the beautiful peninsula of Sorrento. The conference facility is located at the premises of the former Solar Observatory of the Swedish Royal Academy, now owned by the Italian National Research Council. Capri is a famous destination in the Tyrrhenian Sea on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Anacapri is located on the slopes of Mount Solaro at a higher elevation than Capri town. Points of interest include The Blue Grotto, the greatest attraction of the island, Villa San Michele, the Villas of Tiberius and the  Chairlift for Mount Solaro which takes to the highest peak of the island from which you can enjoy the most stunning panoramas. A regular bus running every fifteen minutes takes to the sparkling city of Capri and its famous Piazzetta.  Tickets can be purchased directly from the bus driver.

Transport - The nearest International Airport to Capri is Naples International Airport (http://www.aeroportodinapoli.it).
From Naples International Airport to train station/port
• From the airport the best and cheapest way to get to the train station/port is the AliBus, a bus departing every 20 minutes that takes passengers to either the train station and to the port in a less than 30 minutes.
• From the port to Capri
The island of Capri can be reached by regular ferry or hydrofoil connections from Naples and other locations like Sorrento, Amalfi and Salerno. Ferries depart from Molo Beverello, a few steps away from the bus stop.
